But my pretend theory makes more sense than what actually happened. Why would USFS shoot itself in the foot -- yes, I know, the general public doesn't know USFS has a foot, but still -- by bringing negative publicity down on itself, bad-mouthing one of their own showcased performers, and making themselves look petty and vindictive?
For what? Just to get Phil Hersh off their backs? To calm Frank Carroll down? None of that makes sense to me.
